I don't know why games cost so much more in EU and AUS than in USA (my guess is it's to cover the cost of operating in those regions) but games are cheap in SE Asia because piracy is rampant. Those price points were never supposed to be in effect for first-world consumers. You can try to rationalize it as much as you want, but exploiting those regional differences is really not much better than piracy.

What an asinine assertion. You know why milk is so expensive? Because the price is predicated on what we can pay, not how much of it there is. Same with maple syrup, gas, etc. Pricing boards set prices based on their inventory vs. what we can pay. It's legalized collusion to keep prices artificially high. This is no different. As evidenced by the sales, and profits, of these companies they can very easily sell their product for less - and would as it should happen in an actual real free market. And when they don't that's what leads to actual real piracy and black markets.

Why the hell should we be allowed to be gouged? If they have the right to do it then we should at least possess the right to take our consumer dollars somewhere else for a better deal. Hell, people who live on border towns do it all the time and there's nothing illegal about that. So why should this be any different. No, the only thing this proves is there is a real need to find an alternative Steam now. This is a policy predicated solely on protecting their profits and it's entirely anti-consumer. This is the problem with monopolies.

10 years for what? What exactly has been stolen? Even supposing for a moment that was the case it's akin to locking a kid up in prison for 10 years for stealing a candy-bar. But nooooo! The middlemen shysters have to protect their free ride!

"I'm sorry I let you down again," Sommerfield said. "I was trying really hard."

Phrasing!

At 9:14am, he moved his squad car several minutes' drive away to—seriously—Fapp Circle, where he accessed another pornographic website. He moved his car again and at 9:41am looked at porn from a third location.

Ahahahahahaha! Oh man!

But the saga continues. After his pornographic proclivities were discovered in late 2013, Sommerfield applied to the local Police Pension Board for disability benefits. After his firing, he amended the application to claim his disability happened "in the line of duty," which carries a higher payout. As of February 2015, the contentious matter remains undecided, with the pension board requesting reports from multiple doctors and psychologists before rendering its verdict.

Are you fucking kidding me? This prick obviously has no shame. Boggles...the...mind.

Yeah, I cut my teeth on SSI games. However I doubt they'll make funding with this. The asking price of $25US is too steep. Particularly for what's shown. And that's the second point. That is less than impressive in scope and quality. What can people expect a year and half from now? I've been getting their newsletter since they started but this is not what I expected so I'll be passing on this and we'll see what we'll see.

"I came to Casablanca for the waters."

"I want to be absolutely clear that we have never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services," Cook wrote in a statement on privacy and security published last year. "We have also never allowed access to our servers. And we never will."

Liar liar pants on fire! They allowed access in Canada 38 times last year.

Synthetic chemical scents. Just what you need to go with the radiation from your VR helmet. There's going to be a lot of new cancer lawsuits in the next decade or so.

And it's a good thing someone like Elon Musk wouldn't want anything to do with an evil corp like Apple to begin with. Fucking Apple fanboys just try to ruin everything.

And here's the kicker. The last mile infrastructure is controlled by an oligarchy—three big cable companies: Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon. You know this well. One in three Americans only have one choice for broadband service; most of the others only have two internet providers to choose from.

Without competition, there's no incentive for internet providers to improve improve infrastructure. These massive telecom companies create a bottleneck in the last mile of service by refusing to upgrade critical infrastructure. And they can charge exorbitant prices for the sub-par service while they're at it.

So your internet is shitty and slow and expensive.

A needlessly lengthy article which can be summarized in these two paragraphs.

Every time I read comments like Cutter's I'm glad I turned down my chance to be a CHP. I know any position policing the street is far from easy. In todays society the police are automatically guilty until proven innocent. Even after being proven innocent by actual evidence in a court of law... millions will continue to believe the sound-bite that was a full on lie and will still call for the cops head on a spike for months if not years after proven innocent. Those same people screaming racism refused to see how hypocritical they are. I'm sick of the race card being the first or second card played every damn time somebody doesn't get their way. Can't win an argument play the card.

Oh so you feel cops should be entitled to murder unarmed people whenever they want? You think there aren't issues with race and policing? Some of the responses here are so typical extremist right-wing, knee jerk bullshit. Most cops spend most of their time in anything but danger or anywhere close to it. Unless you think writing tickets and watching road crews work is dangerous. The only self-entitlement going on here is on their side, 'Oh it's such a hard job, people don't understand.' Again. QUIT! No one asked you to do it. You aren't owed anything.

And why do people need to call the cops to begin with? They're not allowed to defend themselves. They're forced into a position of being reliant on the state so you can't blame for that. And if and when they show up it's already after the fact by then. Ever had anything stolen before? Good luck in ever getting back. Maybe they should be looking for stolen shit and skipping the tickets. Society doesn't need glorified ticket writers making 100k a year - no wonder they have to write so many.

People are just tired of cops not being accountable. That there are two sets of rules one for them and one for us. I've worked events for cops before where the fucking Captain has given me his card saying if I get stopped at a DUI checkpoint just show that to them and they'll wave you right through. I see cops constantly breaking the law in small ways they make other people pay for. Obviously that's the sort of shit that grates on people. I worked the G20 and it was very clear there that "serve and protect" only applies to the rich and big business as the illegal mass-arrests at those events always prove.

Once they start actually abiding by the laws themselves, stop needlessly bullying people, stop needlessly murdering people, then they won't face any of those issues. They bring this on themselves.

Contrary to how it sounds, I don't hate cops but there are far too many bad ones out there and that needs to change, but again, the cops themselves won't allow that, again which is probably the largest part of the problem. The thin blue line is protecting the wrong people. And if you're not for the people, why should they be for you?

How are three cops executing an unarmed man in the street for throwing some rocks at their cruiser good guys in any way, shape, or form? Shit like that is insane. How can you expect anything but anti-police remarks and attitudes with stuff like this going on. And it is going on, far too much these days. And it's been going on forever . And 99% of the time those cops get away with it. When the police actually start policing their own and start holding their own accountable and being held accountable then you'll see public perception change, but not until then. Most cops I've met seem to have this attitude they're owed something. No one is forcing you to do the job. Don't like it? Quit and go do something else. You don't get any special treatment as far as I'm concerned. If anything you should be held to an even more exacting standard. If not, to hell with it, fire all the cops and let us all carry guns instead.

Advertising you left a game before it was even delivered isn't what I'd consider a selling point. Look at the reward tiers. Again, it's another classist game that rewards those with money to burn and screws those who don't. So it's just an ODRM arena game that's P2W. Definite pass.

Hey, you can't have it both ways.
Either Star Citizen is a scam, and these guys were smart to leave when they did and start up their own company,
or
Star Citizen is a legit game and these guys are traitors and fools for leaving.
Which is it?

Or maybe they figure why work for Roberts when they can run their own scam seeing how gullible SC chumps are.
